It has been just over two weeks since qualifying closed in the race for the 2020 GOP U.S. Senate nomination in Alabama, and as expected, President Donald Trump has been a focal point of discussion.
Much has been made about former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a late entrant into the race, and his falling out with Trump a year earlier.
During an appearance on Alabama Public Television’s “Capitol Journal” this week, Sessions insisted he would be the most effective among the current field to promote Trump’s agenda and asked viewers to consider where his competitors were during the 2016 campaign.
“I think we’ll just have to talk about it openly and directly to the people of Alabama – honestly about where we are and who can be the most effective advocate for President Trump’s agenda,” Sessions said. “I’m confident that I can do that. I tell you what – go back and look where the others were when I was traveling with him, when I was at the debates with him, when I flew to Mexico with him, on the plane with him and introduced him and was one of the nominators at the Republican convention with Donald Trump.”
“A lot of others are talking today how strong they were, but maybe not when it counted,” he added.
